Review: Saints, Sacrilege and Sedition: Religion and Conflict in the Tudor Reformation

Saints, Sacrilege and Sedition: Religion and Conflict in the Tudor ReformationsSaints, Sacrilege and Sedition: Religion and Conflict in the Tudor Reformations by Eamon Duffy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed this contribution from Eamon Duffy, well known for both his mastery of his topic and his clear and accessible writing style.

This book was originally recommended to me by my own late bishop, Bishop Bill Wright, in the context of one of many conversations about English Church history. My only regret is that I didn’t get around to reading it before his death, as the conversation that would have been had would have further brought the text to life.

Needless to say, the English Reformation is one of those periods of church history that have always appealed to me, and dipping my toes back into the torrent if themes and sub-themes was a distinctly pleasurable contribution to my sabbatical experience.
